Letters: Man, woman, marriage

Glen Gummess’ “boo” of Chick-fil-A smacks of cultural ignorance (Common Sense, Aug. 7). He says Dan Cathy is homophobic for believing in traditional marriage. Our creator instituted marriage between and man and a woman as his first priority after creating Adam and Eve. His first command was “Be fruitful and multiply.” Gummess said, “But, I say, go ahead and let secular society redefine its values.”
One greater than Mr. Gummess said, “But, I say …” This phrase originated with Jesus Christ. He used it 28 times in the “Sermon on the Mount” to show something is false, based on what he is saying in contrast.
The “Sermon on the Mount” placed Jesus on a collision course with the Pharisees, resulting in his crucifixion. No surprise that Mr. Cathy and others are being crucified in the media and by the homosexual assault squad.
In Bowers vs. Hardwick, (1986), the U.S. Supreme Court upheld, in a 5-4 ruling, the constitutionality of a Georgia sodomy law. The majority opinion argued the Constitution did not confer “a fundamental right to engage in homosexual sodomy.” A concurring opinion by Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, cited the “ancient roots” of prohibitions against homosexual sex, quoting William Blackstone’s description of homosexual sex as an “infamous crime against nature.” Burger concluded: “To hold that the act of homosexual sodomy is somehow protected as a fundamental right would be to cast aside millennia of moral teaching.”
Illinois was the first state to decriminalize sodomy. What next? When the New Testament was written, sodomy was widely practiced, even by Caesar. Rome was destroyed from within. America is following suit, as the architects of disaster, the liberal left or progressives, have planned well over the past 60 years.

Vote them all out
The Obama Administration is giving away, with no repayment, billions of our dollars to every country that asks. Yet, the farmers who have lost everything get a “loan” they have to pay back, and it’s their tax dollars the government is loaning them.
If you don’t vote everyone out of office soon, you have no right to complain.
Intersection a hazard
Yesterday the flashing lights and sirens were witnessed again, as another traffic accident happened at the corner of Route 59 and Caton Farm by the BP gas station.
Because of the numerous cars passing through the light, and individuals stopping to make a left turn into the BP or Walgreens, there have been numerous traffic accidents. This can be simply avoided by not allowing left turns and constructing a cement barrier on Caton Farm before the light the same way they are constructed at the other three streets in that crossroad.
We can do better than this. Place a cement barrier and stop the traffic accidents today.
